Ayurveda, being as ancient system of medicine, which comprises hundreds of Kalpanas of pharmaceutical preparations but only few of these Kalpanas are in practice. In this modern era many good preparations have been extinguished in the passage of time among these, Varti Kalpana is main one. Now-a-days, when human life is very fast, we should be ready to make necessary changes in our science according to the need of hour. In present study Nimbadi Yonivarti is selected for the management of Swetapradara which has been mentioned as Anubhuta Yoga by Vd. Devisharan Garga Ayurveda Upadhyaya in “Nari Roganak. The present study was aimed at setting up a standard profile of Nimbadi Yonivarti which was prepared using pharmacognostically authenticated raw drugs followed by subjecting it to detailed pharmacognostical, physicochemical and phytochemical (including Thin Layer Chromatography) analysis as per standard protocol. The observations were systematically recorded. Pharmacognostical findings (crystals, epicarp cells, trichom, etc.) confirm the ingredients present in the finished product. Identified phytochemical components (Carbohydrates, tannins, fanolic compound, glycosides, steroids, flavonoids.etc.) support the intended action of the formulation in vaginal discharge.
